Hello, everyone! This Friday I wanted to talk about the books I missed out on from this year. 2018 was a killer year for releases and debuts, and like always, I didn’t get around to reading every single one I wanted to. So, I’m compiling a small “top five” list of the biggest regrets – and they happen to be ones that I want to tackle first in 2019!
1. Furyborn by Claire Legrand
You’d think that after collecting both editions of the ARC and getting a finished copy when it released, I’d have read this bad boy by now. But nope, I read about four pages and quit for no reason. I’ll definitely be getting back to it in 2019.
2. Everless by Sara Holland
Ashley read this book for her first review at the beginning of the year, and I still have yet to pick it up. Why, you ask? No real reason besides my major mood-reading brain. The concept is really intriguing, and the sequel releases in a couple of weeks. There’s no reason I can’t pick this one up.
3. A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi
After seeing WhittyNovels describe the love interest in this as a “soft boy”, it jumped tremendously higher on my TBR list. I waited in line at this year’s BookExpo to get a copy, and I can’t for the life of me think of why I haven’t read it yet.
4. The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross
Yet another book that Ashley read and enjoyed that I ignored. I heard really great things about it too, so I’m not sure why I’m delaying picking it up. Queens and lineage and politics? It sounds amazing.
5. These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch
My friend Summer and I went to a signing event for this release, and we met Sara. The signed all of my books and talked about Waves, and I remember leaving the event thinking that it sounded AMAZING. Still haven’t touched it. Granted, it came out only a couple of months ago, so I have a slight excuse for not having it read yet, but that’s only a slight one.
And that’s all! There are probably three billion others I could’ve added to this list, but these will do for now. I’m hoping that 2019 becomes my year of sticking to TBR lists. We’ll see…
Until next time,
